An anal fissure is a thin tear, cut or crack in the anal mucosa. It is characterized by pain, discomfort while bowel movement, bleeding, itching and burning after defecation.
Ayurvedic Treatment Principles for Fissure
According to ayurveda, this condition relates to aggravation of Vata and Pitta Dosha. So, we need to treat according to these doshas. We also need a medicine that induces quick healing. We can divide treatment into two main categories:

Ayurvedic Medicine for Anal Fissure
Let’s discuss why does the patient require the above medicines.
Jatyadi Oil helps in healing the fine cracks in the anal mucosa. It also acts as an antiseptic, antimicrobial, antipruritic and wound healing enhancer. Due to these properties, it reduces itching, burning and irritation around the rectal region.
However, Gandhak Rasayana has hot potency, but its potency is based by other Yashtimadhu. It is required to heal the fissure and prevent the infection.
Rajat Bhasma reduces pain associated with anal fissure. It also acts as antimicrobial and prevents infection.
The main purpose of using Triphala Guggulu in the anal fissure is its analgesic and anti-constipation action. However, it is also moderately warming in nature, but Yashtimadhu balances its warming action. It serves the function to reduce constipation, soften the stool, alleviate pain and prevent infection.
If the patient has severe constipation, he can also use Swadishta Virechan Churna. If he has mild constipation, he can use Gulkand or Triphala Churna. In such a case, the patient may not need Triphala Guggulu.
In combination with these ayurvedic medicines, the most patient gets rid of anal fissure within a week. However, some may require 2 to 3 weeks treatment if they have severe cuts in the anal mucosa.
